Comer Construction Raises Awareness About Damage Prevention at Touch A Truck Day

Comer Construction recently partnered with Miss Utility -- a free, one-call notification center for proposed excavation plans -- for Touch a Truck Day on August 12 at Prince George's Stadium in Bowie. Comer Construction and other area contractors, brought heavy machinery and other work vehicles for children to explore in an effort to generate awareness about damage prevention. Comer Construction has participated in this event for the past two years.

Children from the Prince George's County area and beyond, had the opportunity to explore heavy machinery and other vehicles in a safe environment. Children received backpacks, t-shirts and other small items from Miss Utility and participating contractors. The first 500 children ages three to 12 also received an additional Touch a Truck drawstring bag courtesy of the Bowie Baysox and had the opportunity to watch that evening's baseball game versus the Portland Sea Dogs.
